May the Forage Be With You

The PRFA of BC proudly presents May the Forage be With You: a weekly podcast series with engaging forage, livestock, soil health and pasture management topics.

Check out our first episode: a chat about ‘Forage Breeding and Forage Varieties’ with Dr. Bill Biligetu.  Dr. Biligetu is a forage breeder and Associate Professor at the University of Saskatchewan. He is also the Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture Strategic Research Program Chair in Forage Crop Breeding. Find out more about the latest forage varieties in the works and the five basic questions to consider when you think about establishing a new forage stand.

Our next episode: discusses the How-Tos of Cattle Marketing (Part 1) with Brian Perillat, Manager of Canfax.  Although looking at cattle marketing charts can feel overwhelming, Brian can help you narrow down the key indicators to analyze, depending on the market you are interested in. Like anything, practice makes perfect, and Brian offers some easy first steps that you as a producer can take to get more comfortable with cattle marketing to ultimately capture more profits for your operation.
